Yeah, I just picked one up at Oklahoma D-Day, and I LOVE it. Its light, and can carry a lot. I was thinking of getting a cheaper one, but im glad i bought this one. 11/10 on this one.

Ok, so here's my question.

I'm 5'11", and 130 lbs with a 30" waist. I have a Recon IV with custom mods (done by Robert after D-Day '04), that are zippered front, and side tabs sewn on about 1" more inward. It fits alright now, but still doesn't feel tight. There is still plenty of 'air' between my back and the back of the vest.

The size of the vest itself is a problem. It is simply too big for me.

The sabre vest also looks like it'll be this way.

However, given my size specs, do you think the dagger vest will fit me snuggly? I love the idea of the elastic pod belt inside, and that may cause me to get it.

Also, can it hold a 2 liter hydration bladder?

yes and yes,

There is a clip in the front too to hold the left to the right, this might be a little lose if you are a 30in waist, but the velcrow elastic underneath will hold everything tight.

I am using a 70oz (2L) camelbak in my pouch. When it is full it causes the waist to be a little tighter, but when it gets empty you might have to revelcrow your waist.

UPDATE, just played with the vest yesterday and it performed outstanding. Still a little trouble getting empties back into the elastic holders with one hand but they are loosening up alittle bit.

The elastic pod holders aren't a problem with me. I only carry 4 pods anyways.

Now, someone mentioned the Recon 6. WIll that work for me as well, or would the dagger (even though it's more expensive) work better given my size?

Update: MMG this past weekend, I painted my own pods and covered with a clear matte finish, that didn't like the elastic holders on the back, I lost 2 full pods when running. I totally blame this on the paint and not the pods, I have had new, unpainted pods that never fell out while playing. I rocovered both pods (couldn't believe it) one full, one empty but the guy was nice enought to track me down and get it back to me.

My vest is on its way (should be here in 2-3 days), and i was lucky enough to snag it during that "deal of the day" thing. I can't wait for it to get here, and it just got better( i hadn't realized it could carry 7 pods). I'll post pics of it when i get it.

I got the dagger vest for me, I didn't want one that was more like a jacket. I run very hot and need all the cooling I can get - thank god for the ultra fusion clothing!

Well, my 11 year old son is playing paintball, that's why I'm playing. We have bought about 4 different styles of pod packs for him. Each one handles a remote mount and each one ends up falling down off of him when loaded; no hips on him! Well, surprise! The dagger vest is so adjustable I was able to pull all the straps in and it fits him! Along with 5 full pods and his tank remote mounted - anymore stuff and I think his pack will pull him over backwards - ha.

Well, joke was on me. I had to order another pack for myself to use since he took my first one. If you want a vest with great adjustability from small to large folks, get this one.

My vest just arrived about 10 minutes ago, and its awesome yay. Anyways, for those of you who run remote, don't worry about your tank falling out. 4 velcro straps and two buckles will make sure your tank stays in securely.

It would depend on your definition of "rather skinny". Measure your waist (don't just give your pant size as it's not the same) and I can give you more info.

anyone have any suggestions for carrying more gernades than just one? A sling and a belt doesn't work well for me. I slide into positions and need the ability to craw around on the field. This dagger vest is great for the freedom of movement, but, could use more pockets.

You could buy the Spec Ops Grenade Leg Pouch.

Or look for somthing like this and attach it to the straps on the front.

I've seen the grenade leg pouch and was thinking about it. I mostly slide in on my right, years of sliding in the infrantry while carrying a gas mask on the left leg side, I guess that's why. So I could try to carry that on my right side.

That other pouch might work better. I could possibly get that and sew some velcro on the vest to attach the pouch to it.

Thanks for the reply.
